Donald Trump Sticks By His Plan To Ban Muslim Immigration

The GOP's presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump, said that he stood by his call to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. On MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Trump said, "I don’t care if it hurts me. I’m doing the right thing when I do this. And whether it’s Muslim or whether it’s something else, I mean, I have to do the right thing, and that’s the way I’ve been guided."

Trump went on to say, "And I've been guided by common sense, by what's right. And you see what's happening. We have to be careful. I mean, we're allowing thousands of people to come into our country, thousands and thousands of people being placed all over the country that frankly nobody knows who they are. They don't have documentation in many cases — in most cases. And we don't know what we're doing."

In December, Trump had called for a blanket ban on Muslims entering the country after mass shootings were carried out by terrorists in Paris and Southern California. He later clarified his position by saying that leaders of Muslim nations and U.S. citizens who are Muslim would be allowed to enter the country. Members of both parties criticized Trump's plan. Yet, it was popular with the public.
